First post here so go easy on me. Basically I have a really old projector program by the name of "City of Rome", (when I say old I mean going on a decade) and it wont run on any machines with over a gig of ram, which is most of the school. It gives the error;
Error message: "Director Player 6.0 - This program needs 3MB of free virtual memory to run."
When run on those machines. If you put it on compability mode for Windows 95, it will run without the error but as it is a network program, I dont see any way of having it set up like that for all the users that will be using it.
Is there anyway around this ? I've tried converting it using various freeware programs but unforunately due to the age of the program most of them dont even see it as a projector file at all.
With a google search it tells me too;
temporarily set the computer's virtual memory to less than 500 MB
but it's not something I can be doing just for one program and on thousands of machines that use the program.
Compability Mode setting can only be applied to local programs IIRC but a work around I used a long time ago with such software was to setup the compability mode options to get the program to work, and then export the reg settings for said program.
I used compatabiltiy mode back in once-upon-a-time too for a program.
IIRC If you save the reg keys from the hkey_current_user (I'm guessing it's the key above). Then edit the file in notepad, replacing hkey_current_user with hkey_local_machine then it works for all users.
You're still going to have to run it from the local machine though.
